Madoff vs LTCM
Below is a comparison of $1 invested (net) in Madoff’s Ponzi scheme (blue) versus Long-Term Capital Management (red) during the 4+ years both shared life.
[linearly-scaled, growth of $1, net of fees]
Interestingly, even before the wheels began to come off LTCM in May, 1998, Madoff still exhibited a higher Sharpe Ratio than LTCM (3.21 vs 2.66 by my calculation) – that’s one hell of a canary in the coal mine.

None really. Just satisfying my nerd curiosity.
